    I don’t usually drink champagne, but if you made me a quick plate of caviar and brie, I would wash it down with a glass of champagne!

    A little off topic, but remember that movie Sideways? Paul Giamatti's character, a huge wine snob, enjoys a bottle of '61 Chateau Cheval Blanc with a burger and onion rings in one of the final scenes. Drinks it out of a Styrofoam cup.

    Oh, pairs well with caviar and oysters. Think salty/briny.

    10-4 on that approval good buddy. Me, I like a nice sparkling prosecco with just about whatever I have the bottle sitting next to at the time.

    What pairs beautifully is some bourbon in a vanilla milkshake, or vanilla peanut butter shake mmmmmm. Champagne w fast food?? Sounds revolting…but I’m not a fan of champers so I’d never choose to soil my fast food that way.

    Yep, same here! It would ruin my taco bell!

    Champagne (any sparking wine in that style actually) works surprisingly well with fried chicken. Not spicy, etc just plain southern fried chicken. The salty, bready, moist chicken contrasts with a sparkling wine that has acid to cut through the fat. It's similar, actually, to how a beer works with it.

    If someone else is buying me dinner and champagne, I am going to eat it for sure.

    Honestly, if the place offered champagne as an option with fried chicken or whatever, I’d try it once for kicks.

    I would not have high expectations though.

    IMHO, fried food with champagne/sparkling. Fried chicken from Gus’s or stater brothers. It’s close to fast food….

    Good champagne? Sure. It's awesome with fried chicken, so why not fast food?
